With the 24/7 coverage of all the [mostly real] problems we are grappling with as humans on this planet, it’s easy to forget that there are billions of inspiring people trying hard to live their best lives every day.

Grateful for moments of clarity that cut through the noise.

I enjoyed reading @joshm’s well-penned “Notes on Roadtrips” so much I needed to write down a few notes of my own. If you haven’t read it yet, do yourself a favor and add it to your Sunday reading. josephmclaughl.in/links/2022/10/…

Notes on 'Notes on Roadtrips'

What an outstanding piece of writing. I felt like I was riding alongside @joshm in the back seat of the Chevy Tahoe as I was reading it.

So many of the points and asides resonate with me. It’s as if Josh plucked the thoughts and feelings right out of my head and wrote about them for the world to read. I won’t begin quoting them because I will never be able to stop. The entire thing is wonderful and well worth the time.

Apple Watch Ultra First Impressions

I got the Apple Watch Ultra and if I could sum up my first impressions in one word, it’d be: awesome.

The larger and brighter screen, the titanium case, the nice knobby crown, the new alpine band, the increased battery life, the dual-band GPS… I could go on and on. I was already in love with the potential of the Apple Watch platform as battery tech gets better, and this Watch furthers that love. I am enjoying every day with this iteration, and I’m extremely excited for what future iterations bring!
